** The Spanish version was specially stupid; the first film was called "La Jungla de Cristal" (The Glass Jungle). Of course, the second one is "La Jungla de Cristal 2", and the third one "La Jungla de Cristal 3"... even if the original name was derived from it taking place in a skyscraper. The fourth film bettered it by removing the "glass" part of it and was called "La Jungla 4.0", and the second and third films' names were retranslated as simply "La Jungla 2" and "La Jungla 3" (with the relevant sub-titles) in DVD releases.

* [[Literature/LorienLegacies]] has a series of (important) supplemental e-novellas called "The Lost Files." The first title in this series, which sets the insanely high bar for story title-age everywhere, is I Am Number Four: The Lost Files: Six's Legacy. The rest of them (Nine's Legacy, The Fallen Legacies) follow this trend. A fifth collection (13-15) was released in May 2016 as Zero Hour. (I Am Number Four: The Lost Files: Zero Hour Lorien Legacies: The Lost Files... [[ColonCancer we may need an oncologist in here]].

** The subsequent direct-to-DVD films then went back to the original ''Pie'' name but replaced the numbers with subtitles (''American Pie Presents: Band Camp'', ''American Pie Presents: The Naked Mile'' and ''American Pie Presents: Beta House'').
** And now going back to the original cast with ''American Reunion''. (Which was retitled ''American Pie: Reunion'' in the international release.)

* The first three seasons of ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' are named as follows: Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha (season 1), Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs (season 2), and Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS (season 3). Currently there are two manga titles that are considered its fourth season, which coincidentally are sort of oddballs in the series itself, namely Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid (a LighterAndSofter TournamentArc starring Nanoha's adopted daughter Vivio from season 3) and Manga/MagicalRecordLyricalNanohaForce (a DarkerAndEdgier series with a male protagonist).

* ''ChaosFighters'' has a few novels with such titles. ''[[NonLinearSequel Chaos Fighters II]]'' is a major offender with subtitles ''Cyberion Strike'' and its sequel ''Chemical Siege''. However, it helps that the former is [[spoiler:the name of the final attack launched by the big bad of the novel]] while the latter refers to the chemical hollows which pollutes the city of Murio. Both titles are set as a TimeSkip to the ''main series''.
